secretary of defense. you served with chuck hagel. how do you think he will do? >> i think he will do well. chuck is a friend. he was a republican. i was a democrat. he served for 12 years of the 18 years i served in the senate. i think he's smart. he's capable. he knows defense and foreign policy issues. you know, here is a guy that fought on the battlefield, earned two purple hearts and was hectored during his nomination. you know, i thought what happened to him was pretty thoughtless in this process. >> bill: he was badly treated by his fellow republicans. unfairly, i believe. >> these are people who worked with him 12 years. he would go to their caucus once a week. presumably, all friend and acquaintances and i think for political reasons, he took it on the chin during that process. but he's now there and he's going to be a good secretary of defense in my judgment. >> bill: do you think he can repair -- mend his fences? >> i do. chuck is smart and capable and i think he will do well. >> bill: if he were in the senate today, how would you vote on the sequester? what do you think the sen

the state of the union tomorrow. and we hope on wednesday and/or thursday we'll be able to finish the hagel nomination. mr. president, there's never in the history of the country ever been a filibuster on a defense secretary, and i'm confident there won't be on this one. but i'm told the committee will report this matter out tomorrow, and we will move this to the senate floor just as quickly as possible. and then we have coming in the near future -- we of course, we have to -- when we get back we'll try to complete the national security director, mr. brennan, and we'll do mr. lew, who will be the secretary of treasury. and of course we have -- we're going to have some votes this -- we'll line up this week as to what we're going do when we get back after the work period we're going to have at home for five days. so i look forward to a productive night. i hope we can complete these votes, because there's people who've worked very, very hard on this, not the least of which has been the presiding officer, the chairman of the judiciary committee, who has worked on this matter for a number of yea
